J-MILLA – ‘On My Soul’

J-MILLA’s BIGSOUND Travel Essentials


J-MILLA: Headphones are a must whenever I’m traveling as the music never stops.


J: Usually I’m too lazy to get a haircut so I need a hat to hide my scrubby hair.


J: Always need a fresh pair of sneakers in my suitcase because I burn through them on stage.


J: Always take my laptop as it holds everything music related and if there any technical difficulties I can rely on it for emergency backup.


J: A towel is crucial when I’m performing because I sweat my hole out.
